WWF apologises for incident against Saudi Arabia
Berlin: The environmental group WWF has apologised for an embarrassing incident at a recent climate conference involving an employee who vandalised Saudi Arabia`s nameplate.
The WWF employee at UN conference in June in the German city of Bonn broke the Saudi`s conference nameplate into two pieces, threw it in a toilet, took photographs of it and distributed the pictures.
WWF said on Wednesday it has "apologised unreservedly" to Saudi Arabia and the UN climate group, the UNFCCC, and that the unidentified employee no longer works for them.
Saudi Arabia is a major oil producer that is often criticised by environmentalists. WWF stressed that the employee`s prank was carried out without the group`s knowledge or approval.
